Clothing made from cashmere is now available almost everywhere, but the region that this fine material comes from is almost unknown.  Is it at peace or war?  How do the people live there?  Answers are offered in Valley of Saints by Musa Sayeed, whose parents had to flee from the Indian province of Kashmir to the USA, where Musa was born.  When he visits his parents' home country, he is overwhelmed by what he finds.  Those intense first impressions are the basis for Valley of Saints, his first full-length film.
